Know your rights as a carer
Carers Rights Guide
Carers UK have created a guide to carers rights that gives a full picture of the practical and financial support available to carers.
The guide includes:
Benefits: an overview of which benefits you or the person you can for may be entitled to and information about how to get a benefits check.
Other financial help: including help with council tax, fuel costs, pensions and health costs.
Practical help: including community care assessment, carer’s assessment and direct payments.
Technology: information about health and care technology that could make life easier for you and the person you care for.
Your workplace: your rights at work, from flexible working and parental leave to protection from discrimination.
